Our View

A self-guided walk from the pub makes the most of the wooded hills and lanes here above Colwyn Bay. Alternatively, grab a seat in the garden and appreciate the views across to the gigantic headlands of The Little and Great Orme hills jutting out into silvery Liverpool Bay. The interior is a pleasing mix of Edwardian parlour and country inn. Beer festivals are regularly held, complementing the already generous selection of real ales, many from North Wales breweries. The food side of the business is equally appealing, with daily-changing menus offering a liberal choice, from sandwiches upwards. Breeze in with a starter like seared pigeon breast, wild mushroom sausage and beetroot fondant; or charcuterie board for two or three to share. Mains cover all the bases: Sicilian fish stew; slow-braised lamb shoulder; and roasted squash, leek and chestnut Wellington are typical quality choices on the all-day menu. There is a private dining room for small parties.

About The area

Discover Conwy

The majority of the population of Conwy lives along its picturesque coastline, while a third of the county falls within jaw-dropping landscape of the Snowdonia National Park. The town of Conwy, which takes its name from the county (which in turn was named after the river that runs through it), is undoubtedly one of the great treasures of Wales.

Three fine bridges – Thomas Telford’s magnificent suspension bridge of 1822, Robert Stephenson’s tubular railway bridge, and a newer crossing – all stretch over the estuary beneath the castle, allowing both road and the railway into this medieval World Heritage Site. Pride of place goes to the castle, dating back to 1287.

Conwy is the most complete walled town in Britain, with walls measuring an impressive six feet in thickness and 35 feet in height. The walkway along the top offers splendid over-the-rooftop views of the castle, the estuary and the rocky knolls of nearby village of Deganwy. At the wall’s end, steps descend to the quayside where fishermen sort their nets and squawking seagulls steal scraps.
